Xiaomi Mi 9T is another hype brought by Xiaomi for all Mi Fans around the globe. The device is originally available in China as Redmi K20. Both devices – Mi 9T and Redmi K20 – are basically the same devices with different naming.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 SoC resides inside the phone. The SoC is not a mid-range chipset. Instead, it is a near-to-flagship level chipset.
Specs wise, Mi 9T boasts Octa-core (2×2.2 GHz Kryo 470 Gold & 6×1.8 GHz Kryo 470 Silver) CPUs and Adreno 618 GPU.
Just like its big brother the Mi 9T Pro a.k.a Redmi K20 Pro, the device also sports triple camera setup.
The first camera is a Sony 48MP ultra high-resolution wide angle camera. This main camera equips a lens with f/1.75 aperture and it has 1.6μm 4-in-1 Super Pixel sensor.
The second camera is an 8MP one. It has a 53mm telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom and f/2.4 aperture. It employs a digital 1/4″ sensor with 1.12µm pixel size.
The third rear camera is an ultra 124.8° wide-angle 13MP camera. Its sensor size is 1.12μm per pixel and its lens has f/2.4 aperture.
This triple camera setup is awesome on its own. However, this uncommon setup makes its users hard to find the perfect Google Camera build.
Google Camera is an awesome camera app made officially Pixel phones. Pixel devices do not equip multiple camera setup. This does not stop it to be one of the world’s flagship Android phones.
Google’s custom algorithm inside the Pixel 3 / 3 XL is outstanding. The app features stunning HDR+ Enhanced mode that is capable of producing high-quality dynamic range photos.
Some other features including Portrait mode, Slow motion mode, Lens Blur mode, Motion photos, and the hype Night Sight mode.
Google Camera is very popular among Android users. Thanks to third-party developers who have managed to port the original app making it compatible for non-Pixel devices.
There are a number of popular GCam modders such as BSG, Arnova8G2, San1ty, CStar, Xtreme, Arthur, Backrider, Bulkin043, fu24, scrubber, Urikill, Tolyan009, Skulshady, and so on.
With so many developers porting Gcam for many devices, there are also so many builds, versions, and variants. This makes users confused about which APK to install.
Please remember that there is no universal APK or configuration that works on all devices. Users have to do some researches on what works and what doesn’t. Learning from other users’ experiences is the best teacher.
